12 Ugliest Buildings on the Planet

SHARE


More often than night we see extraordinary buildings during our travels or commutes, and many of them simply boggle the mind with their creativity of design and outstanding appearance. On the other side of the coin, however, there are those that make us take a look and literally think to ourselves, “What was that person thinking?” Well, here are some prime examples of such buildings. Take a gander and see for yourself; you will likely be unpleasantly surprised.

1. Roundhouses in the Netherlands

A group of architects where granted permission in the late 1970’s to build roundhouses, also called ‘bolwoningen’. If it worked out the way it was supposed to they would have built more, but these were so ugly that they garnered no further encouragement, so the plans ended up in the toilet, so to speak.

2. Ryugyong Hotel

This building can be found in Pyongyang. Building began in 1987 and ended in ’92 because the project ran out of the needed funding. It ended up without elevation, making this a shoe in for our ‘ugliest building’ list!
